BBWA Nominated Charity 2018-19
Each year we support a local charity. This year we are delighted to be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support. I hope you will help us raise the awareness of this charity throughout the year. Read a little more about it below from Fundraising Manager, Kaeti Morrison .
Macmillan Cancer Support
Each week, nineteen people in B&NES hear the words "I'm sorry it's cancer... ". One in two people are likely to get cancer in their lifetimes. That could be you, it could be me.
Cancer can affect everything, including a person's body, relationships and finances.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and personal support to people affected by cancer every year. We are here to support people during treatment, help with work and money worries, and listen when people need to talk about their feelings.
Macmillan receives no Government money and relies on generous donations from the public. With your support we can help more and more people affected by cancer every year.
Life with cancer is still your life and Macmillan is there to help you live it. If you want information, or just a chat, call 0808 808 0000 (Monday to Friday, 9am-8pm) or visit www.macmillan.org.uk.

LAST YEAR'S CHARITY (2017-18)
Marie Curie, Bath & North East Somerset
At Marie Curie we believe that every day of your life matters from the first to the last.
Every minute one person dies in the UK and 3 out of 4 people who die will need palliative care. Every five minutes someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life and seven out of ten carers say that people with a terminal illness don't get all the care and support they need.
We believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel.
Marie Curie Nurses care for patients in their home, when they need us the most, day or night and our hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK.
Our trained volunteers and advisers are here for patients and their families with practical information and support when they don't know what to do next or just need to talk.
£20 pays for a Marie Curie Nurse to look after someone with a terminal illness for one hour in the comfort of their own home.
We are thrilled that BBWA have chosen us as their charity for the coming year - every little helps.
